About Our Summer Programs
Welcome to HealthBarn USA, the only camp where you can eat, plant, cook and play! We offer Summer Camp (ages 4-6, 7-9 and 10-13) and Summer Seedlings (ages 3-5) in Ridgewood, NJ (we are no longer operating at Abma’s Farm). This hands-on fun and educational experience serves as an important building block for your child’s healthy future in the midst of our fast-food, high touch technology culture. Our goal is to give campers the tools to build strong bodies and healthy minds — it’s not only possible, it’s contagiously fun!
Our award-winning curricula empower campers to master organic gardening, culinary, nutrition and life skills (including putting values into practice and exploring nature), while having a great time! The hands-on cooking includes our “test kitchen” as well as preparing a naturally delicious breakfast, lunch and snack each day with freshly picked ingredients from the garden. There is no need to pack any food! We will accommodate for food allergies upon request.
We are proud to be a New Jersey licensed summer camp and excited to announce that our organic teaching garden is a certified sustainable habitat by the National Wildlife Federation!
Thank you to our families for an amazing Camp 2023 season! We will begin early registration for our returning families December 1, 2023 through January 5, 2024, and then, we will open registration to all families. We opened Summer Camp on July 6, 2020 during the pandemic and we successfully created a healthy and happy environment based on our pandemic procedures/protocols registration structure and our amazing families. We are definitely all in this together!
